Recon probes are more efficient at surveying the terrain than satellites because they are closer to the ground and do not have a high movement speed. In this regard, states are increasingly resorting to the use of such devices. This was stated in an interview with URA.RU by the head of the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Special Forces Command of the Russian Air Force (2007-2009), reserve colonel Sergei Khatylev.

“Satellites fly in close orbit. This is about 180-200 kilometers. And the Chinese balloon flew at an altitude of 17-18 kilometers. At the same time, he made a maneuver. First, he climbed to 27 kilometers, and then he went down to 17-18 kilometers. They can watch for a long time. The satellite circles the Earth’s surface at high speed and takes a certain strip,” said Sergey Khatylev.

At the same time, the interlocutor of the agency noted, unknown objects in the air can not always be reconnaissance probes. “Recently, a study was published by the United States of America by a research organization that analyzed all the information on unidentified aircraft over the past 50 years. Of the 100% of reports of the discovery of such objects, only 10% have signs of an unidentified object, ”he specified.

In early February, a balloon was seen in the sky over the United States. The Pentagon said it belongs to China. Meanwhile, an unidentified flying object was spotted in eastern China, which Beijing authorities want to shoot down. Also over the United States shot down another flying object in the space of the country. The US military did not give up on the idea that the downed object could be of extraterrestrial origin.
